Falun Dafa practitioner Ms. Liu Mei of Donggang City, Liaoning Province, was arrested and sent to Shenyang Women's Prison in November 2002. Ms. Liu Mei was cruelly persecuted and suffered phthisis as a result. Ms. Liu Mei and her family had demanded many times that she be released on medical parole, but Shenyang Women's Prison refused to set her free. Ms Liu Mei has been in the prison hospital for six months and her situation is very serious, yet the prison is still cruelly persecuting her.

At the same time, Ms. Liu Mei's two brothers and her husband are illegally detained in the Dabei Prison as they refuse to give up practicing Falun Dafa. They are suffering exceptionally cruel persecution as this article is being written.
